"Aquaman" star Jason Momoa charmed movie lovers with his handsomeness following his appearance in the blockbuster, but what was even more captivating was his 19-year-long romance with his ex-wife, Lisa Bonet.
These two created many memories in their $3.5 million mountainside abode, which remains a jaw-dropping estate.
Jason Momoa's great hair, full brows, toned body, and commanding voice, paired brilliantly with his exceptional acting skills, have made him an actor to die for.

However, apart from his alluring looks, the actor's love story was a one-time inspiration to many. Momoa and Lisa Bonet became an item after officially meeting in 2005 through a mutual friend.
This was a dream come true for Momoa, who had been in love with his ex-wife since he saw her on the big screens. So when the opportunity came, these two made a magical love tale, irrespective of their age difference.
But sometimes, fairy tales do have a different ending, and sadly, that was the case for these Hollywood lovebirds. While they never made it to forever land, separating after nearly two decades together, they ensured to have a takeaway from their bond.
The former couple are parents to two kids whose appearances are as stunning as their famous parents. Before ending their marriage, Momoa was visibly in awe of fatherhood as he sometimes loved to show off bits of their family life at home.
To the outside world, everything seemed perfect with the Momoa-Bonet family; that was why it was shocking to many when the couple's love story turned sour. However, maybe this was the best decision, having figured that they were not meant to be.
THE HOLLYWOOD POWER COUPLE BECOMES EXES

Marrying Bonet was one of the best things to happen to Momoa, who had her as his childhood crush at age eight. Although it took over a decade before they shared wedding vows, they remained a phenomenal duo throughout their time as lovers.
Momoa was always in awe of his ex-wife, and in the past, he would speak excitedly about their romance. It did not matter whether she was about twelve years his senior nor that she already had a child from a former marriage.

What many thought would stand the test of the time featured the famous Hollywood love-gone-bad line: separation/divorce. Earlier in the year, these two shocked the world by sharing that they would be divorcing via Momoa's IG page.
Even though their time as lovers was over, the message was written respectfully to their families and fans.

In conclusion, they assured the public that their kids would not suffer, as they would remain dedicated to them. Their joint statement also read:
"The love between us carries on, evolving in ways it wishes to be known and lived. We free each other to be who we are learning to become…Our devotion unwavering to this sacred life & our Children. Teaching our Children what's possible. Living the Prayer. May Love Prevail."
A few weeks after the since-deleted post, the couple was rumored to have reconciled. The "Aquaman" star, who moved out initially into a camper van, moved again into their home.

Also, a source confirmed that the couple's teenage kids were happy about the reunion. But before the gossip had time to settle, Momoa explained that they were not back together and were family during a red carpet interview.
His explanation justified why he was seen in their former home. He would continue to have the same bond with his ex-wife since they intend to co-parent their kids, following the most amicable divorce in Hollywood history.
While the actor is still residing in his camper van, his ex-wife and kids are enjoying the ambiance of their expansive LA mansion, purchased for $3.5 million.
WHAT ABOUT THE COUPLE'S HOME WHERE THEY RAISED THE KIDS BEFORE THE DIVORCE?
More than once, Momoa made some promotional content on the site by sitting comfortably on the grass while unboxing items.
In entering the kitchen, guests must be on the lookout for a two-step platform beneath the door.
Inside, it is fully equipped with the appropriate fittings, primarily brown woodworks.
The entrance hall boasts a white railing, but that is not the only place with an enchanting view.
Another place worth admiring is the home office, synonymous with a music room with a crisp white widespread table and shelves stacked with many hardcopy albums.
Momoa has a unique music room, but this section is home to his plethora of guitars. Their home is not the conventional type, but it tells what the couple stands for.
The actor advocates for a healthier and safer environment and is conscious of recycling plastic materials.
So it's not a surprise that the home possesses a climbing room "made of recycled plastic bottles, resin insoles (from Algae) and biodegradable consoles…packed and shipped plastic-free."
Outside, they have a garage that looks like a mechanic's workshop. It also has a free space for plenty of cars and even bicycles.
NO REUNION AFTER ALL
Despite having lived in such a beautiful estate, Momoa's decision to continue living in his camper van costing $750k remains unchanged after a failed attempt at a reunion.
However, the actor lives a stone's throw from his children's home while the vehicle is parked in a friend's yard. His Ford RV used to be accommodation whenever he filmed on location.
The automobile was customized in 2018 to look and feel like a home away from home. It features an outdoor kitchen, an induction cooktop, a Nespresso machine, and a king-size mattress.
Momoa has been described as a man who is not into a luxury lifestyle. So living in his camper van and wearing ripped clothes even though he would appear a certain way does not bother him.
Apart from living comfortably and a few blocks from his family, the "Aquaman" icon has resumed a not-too-serious relationship with actress Eiza Gonzalez.
Although an insider confirmed that he cares about her and they are dating, another source revealed that they are taking it one step at a time while having fun.
Momoa had been captured attending the premiere of Gonzalez's film "Ambulance," but they did not strut the red carpet holding hands like lovers.
Amid the new development, Bonet, who does not have any social media account and has protected her privacy as long as it can be remembered, is yet to comment. Instead, the actress has chosen silence.
PARENTING BETWEEN MOMOA AND BONET
Becoming a father to a daughter, Lola, was an overwhelming feeling for the "Aquaman" star. He admitted that being responsible for another life made him excited and more than ready. In his words:
"It's a beautiful thing to be a parent."
Momoa also revealed that parenting his daughter required more nurturing. Also, the actor stated that he tries to keep his father of instincts when acting, but sometimes, it helps to interpret the character the best way.
The father-of-two confessed that at first, parenting his son, Wolf, was a bit difficult because he grew up without a father. However, he vowed to be the best parent by not enforcing rules but connecting with him.
Thankfully, he is not only a father to his biological kids but also extends the loving branch to his stepdaughter, Zoe Kravitz. Momoa and his kids recently attended "The Batman" premiere to support Zoe.
He acknowledged that the young actress was making her family proud. Even though Bonet was absent, Momoa mentioned that they were all excited to be attending the event, crowning his statement with, "it's still family, you know?"
